about 1490, restored in about 1850

Three-light window. Christ is depicted on the cross in the centre, with Mary and John in the outer lights. Beneath are depicted King Cadwaladr with donor portraits in the lower outer lights. Christ is depicted arising out of the tomb in the three tracery lights above, with soldiers below.



Church of St Cadwaladr, Llangadwaladr, Anglesey
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The donors depicted are Meurig ap Llywelyn ap Hwlcyn and his wife, Marged ferch Ifan Fychan and Owain ap Meurig and his wife, Elin ferch Robert.

The glass has been restored with new glass inserted, in about 1850, to complete the scene. Although the style is very close, the tracery lights are probably nearly all nineteenth century, made to complete the new window lights into which the scene was placed.
